Efforts To Recall Joe Arpaio Fall Short
### via AZ Central
Organizers fell short Thursday in gathering the required number of valid signatures to recall Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
The grass-roots group Respect Arizona needed to submit 335,317 valid signatures by 5 p.m.
Lilia Alvarez, the group’s campaign organizer, said that more than 300,000 signatures were collected but that the group will not submit the petitions for a count “out of respect to voters and taxpayers.”
“It is definitely a sad day because nobody wins,” Alvarez said inside the county recorder and election offices.
